I'm not normally into the loot grab, unless it's Diablo 2 or, in this case, Borderlands 2. I've put 400 hours into this game and though I be be close to done with it at this point, it was an amazing experience. To get the most our of this game, you need to play it with friends, as trading loot with friends makes the trading element a lot more addictive. Certain combat moments can become truly memorable. Most of the expansion packs were truly worthy additions, as well.

For single-player this is a big improvement over the previous game. In the first game the storyline was absent for much of the game, none of the characters showed any signs of a personality, and the level design was virtually the same everywhere. In this sequel the storyline is much meatier, the characters have a personality, and the level design and visual settings are much more varied. It improves on everything I did not like in the first game yet keeps the same gameplay elements as before.

A great improvement and direction from the original. The writing and humor is great, the new character classes are a blast and as always, great to play with a team of co-op buddies.

Can drag at some points, but can be a total blast at others. What will keep you going through the lower parts is constant hunger for bigger, bladder guns. You will always find new toys to play with, and that's the best part. This games brings out the loot whore in all of us.

Its funny, raunchy, rude, immature, and sort of boring, but if you can deal with that the mechanics work fine, the level gap playing with higher level friends kinda breaks the game though.

Borderlands 2 is more of the same, if the same contained 97.5% more wubs, improved in every way, and had a decent story! If you like shooters, massive arsenals, and RPGs, then this is the game for you! Gun variety is better than ever, I even found a shotgun that explodes into smaller shotguns that chase enemies, while shooting, and explode even more! And that was just when RELOADING. All in all, a great game with tons of replay value, and a must-have for anybody with an Xbox 360.

 Beetle Adventure Racing - Nintendo 64
"I thought the New Beetle was cool as hell back then but had low expectations for a game I expected was not much more than a commercial for it. What I found, though, quickly became my favorite racer for the N64. Magnificent tracks highlight the experience, full of clever shortcuts and dynamic features. The cars are a blast to drive and unlocking the last couple of hidden ones was tough but worth the trouble. Put some time into this one and it’ll pull you in too." - stereopathic

 Beyond Good & Evil - Xbox
"From the characters to the design to the mechanics to the sound to the voices, this is a game with a spectacular vision. It’s a wonderful, upbeat take on action adventure that enraptured me from the outset. Combat feels fluid, exploration is rewarding and the photography is just cake. Jade herself stands as one of the best female characters I’ve ever played and for no other reason than she just feels…authentic. She’s a female everyman, capable and intelligent, undamaged and unsexualized." - stereopathic

 Freedom Fighters - Xbox
"A brilliant shooter where the shooting is secondary. The challenge actually comes from strategically diminishing the enemy’s ability to defend itself before making your final assault on a main objective. For instance, is an attack helicopter repelling your team? Take out the helipad first. Each accomplishment helps you recruit more soldiers to aid you in the fight. Music is solid. Comic-style art looks and runs great in 720p. Controls are weird but easy to get past." - stereopathic

 Destiny - PlayStation 4
"looks kinda bland for me and not as sheerfull as Borderlands universe." - secuda

 Destiny - PlayStation 4
"Sadly can't play the Beta.. :( But will certainly get full game when that comes out later this year." - PSforLife
